In the previous article of this series, we studied in the light of Gospel, events mentioned in Exodus 18. Now we move to the next chapters of Exodus. Chapter 19 to 23 deals with Ten Commandments and other laws which God spoke from Mount Sinai. Let us meditate what Gospel centric lessons we can draw from Ten Commandments and other laws.  Careful observation shows that the laws of Moses including the Ten Commandments were the terms and conditions of a contract that was being signed between God and Israelites. God promised Israelites that he would make them the kingdom of Priests and his possession only if they obey his terms and laws. Observe closely the order of events recorded from Exodus 19 to 24;

  1. First, the redeemed people reach the foot of Sinai (Exo 19:1).
  2. Then God promises them the blessing of the priesthood (Exo 19:6).
  3. Then God spoke to them Ten Commandments and few other laws from Sinai (Exo 20-23) as a prerequisite to granting them the promise of being God’s priesthood (Exo 19:5)
  4. Israelites agree to the terms and conditions and laws of God by saying, “All that God has said we will do it (Exo 24:3).”
  5. Then Moses began the legal process. He records what God spoke (Exo 24:4). He reads it before people and seals it with the blood of a sacrificed animal (Exo 24:5-7).

So we observe that a promise is made by God in Exo 19. Then certain conditions are set by God (Exodus 20-23). And then Moses as mediator ratifies this deal with blood and sacrifice. The contract is that God would make the kingdom of priests, which means they will have access to God. But the condition that was set was that they must obey the laws which God spoke from Sinai. This is what we read in Exodus 19 to 24. This is known as the Old Covenant.

In the New Testament, Jesus made another covenant with his followers. Jesus said,

“This cup is New Covenant in my blood, which is poured for you”

Luke 22:20

Apostle Paul compares the two covenants. Paul writes that the covenant received at Mount Sinai is comparable to bondwoman Hagar (Galatians 4:21-31). Laws of Moses, in the old covenant, were bindings of contract. The word bondwoman or bondage signifies bindings or conditions laid upon. But in the new covenant, Paul says, the promise is like that to a free woman Sarah and her child. There are no bindings. To Isaac, the promise belongs due to inheritance (Gal 4:28, 31, 7). Therefore Peter writes, we have become the kingdom of priests unto God (I Pet 2:9). So while at Sinai conditions were laid to make Israelites as God’s possession and the Kingdom of Priest, we the New Covenant partners get the promise to be priests without condition. The priest is one who has access to God. A priest can eat of the bread of Lord’s temple. Similarly, Jesus while making New Covenant says,

ye shall dine with me in the Kingdom of God or in other words, we could eat together with God and have access to God (Luke 22:30, 22 paraphrased).” Then the writer of Hebrew says that while in the first covenant, access to Mount Sinai (God’s fellowship) was restricted, in such a way that even if a beast tried to approach Sinai, then death was certain for him (Heb 12:20, 2 Cor 3:7), the New Covenant has given access to God to us that we are come unto Zion (New Sinai), to the city of God.

So are we saying that we the New Testament people should not obey the Ten Commandments or moral aspects of God? Nah! We are saying that it is not binding on us to achieve God’s promise. We have achieved God’s promise and now we obey God not out of compulsion but out of love. In New Covenant, we have access to the throne of God, and we are a kingdom of priests because of the blood of Jesus.  So the tithes and other laws do not bring a curse on us as fraud monks of TPM teach us, by pointing to us the conditions of laws of Moses as God’s compulsory commandment upon all his worshippers.

God’s Dealings Before and After Mt Sinai

God promised Abraham, that his seeds would possess the land (Gen 15:18-21). When God made this covenant with Abraham, there was no stipulation on Abraham to fulfil or his descendants to fulfil for God to bring the promise to fruition. But when the covenant at Sinai was made, Israel was asked to “keep” certain conditions, if they were to enjoy the conditional blessings attached to it (Exo 19:5, 24:7). Therefore it is worth noting how God dealt with Israel in time before and after this deal was signed by blood.

Observe that when God redeemed Israel from Egypt, we read “God heard their groaning, and remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob (Exo 2:24; 6:3).” So God forgave all their shortcomings and redeemed them from bondage into which they had fallen by their birth. So even if they did murmuring on seeing the army of Pharaoh behind them at the red sea, God overlooked their doubt and fear they cast on his name. Then when the water was bitter they made a complaint, but God winked at it also. Then again they grumbled when they had no food (Exo 16:2-3) and no water (Exo 17:3), but God did not punish them. However when the covenant was signed after they had agreed to its terms and conditions by saying, “All that God says we will do (Exo 19:8, 24:3: 24:7),” then God’s dealing with them changed. First, we read that they danced in front of the golden calf when the terms of condition had mentioned that thou shall have no other gods before me. So we read that this time God did not wink at their mistake. We read God smote them (Exo 32:35). Then God killed Nadab and Abihu and sent fire when Dathan Korah and Abiram rebelled and Israelites murmured. We also know that God sent fiery serpents into the wilderness. When Miriam, the sister of Moses made a complaint, then she was made leprous. So it is very clear, that God was showcasing humanity that attempts to get justification by terms and conditions of the law will lead them to doom.  

It must not be assumed what is not spoken. The Abrahamic covenant was related to the inheritance of the land but the Sinaitic covenant was about blessings in the Land. Therefore the effects of the Sinaitic covenant is visible in the form of punishment for the same things they were let off earlier.

Venom Removal Series - Gospel in Exodus- Part 9
for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.

We are not saying that in the New Testament we can murmur and do all wrong things which Israelites did in the wilderness because are not under Old Contract of Sinai. What we are saying is that unlike the Sinai covenant, God is merciful in New Covenant. However this in no way is a license to tempt God.  Listen to what Apostle Paul has to say;

1 Corinthians 10

Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 

2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 

3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 

4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 

5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. 

6 Now, these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. 

7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play. 

8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. 

9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted and were destroyed of serpents.

10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. 

11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 

So here is a comparison we can make for people under New Covenant people under Old Covenant;

The Church in the WildernessThe Church of the New Testament
Red Sea ExperienceWater Baptism
Did eat Spiritual MeatCommunion (spiritual meat); become part of body of Christ (reconciliation with God)
Everyone Drank from the RockEternal Life by Holy Spirit flowing from within us, by making us as a well of living waters (see previous article in this series).
They lusted, murmured, tempted, fornicated, became idolatrous;We should not lust from things of world, not become idolaters, murmur or fornicate or tempt Lord.
God was not Pleased with themWe should be careful

  1. Hello all.
    This article true. Old ten commandments not valid. We people of new testament got higher order ministry. We received better 10 commandments through deeper revelations. This below our tpm church 10 commandments.

    1. I the Tpm, only church in world; thou shalt not go to any other church in world.

    2. Thou shalt not keep mirror in faith home. Camera or any photography graven image of holy tpm meeting is idol worship.. Chief pastor’s photo ok.

    3. Remember to keep three meetings Holy – Sunday Wednesday Saturday.

    4. Honour thy mother father by forsaking them and joining our ministry. You get many father mother to serve in tpm. Leave one get many free.

    5. Thou shalt not kill and still remain in same center.

    6. Thou shalt not commit publishing of workers adultery in internet whatsapp. Keep quiet. Ignore. I chief pastor wil manage all and give excuses.

    8. Thou shalt not steal from tithes. Very strict.

    9. Thou shalt not covet neighbour workers imported stuff.

    10. Thou shalt not covet your own wife. Live like brother sister.

      Very Good Evening

      Your words saying that you people are prophets like Paul and sinless people in the earth. you people murmuring against only TPM people while leaving so many false prophets and pastors in India or the world. This reveals that you people (mostly Admin) have some personal grudge against TPM only and friends become enemies and enemies become friends. (John 8:7) When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

      This websites and comments characters reveals like a movie and Admin is Hero, you people are acting like hero friends and TPM church is villain.

      kindly answer my question?
      1. Only One TPM Church is preaching false messages in the entire world as per your concern? or all Pastors are in the world preaching correct?. You people only sinless people in the earth?

      You people don’t bother about TPM church and their People and Just pray for them if you have kind heart and concern about them like God’s People. The God will remove evil deeds of the people of God from the land and God’s vision that would definitely give God’s people.

      if you want criticize the pastors and prophets to do all the pastors and prophets in India or world without any partiality because you have series of friends/followers . if you required, I can give some messages of other pastors and prophets including Paul Washer also. If you are perfect in Bible and go for debates like Bible vs Quaran, Christian vs Hindu then God will bless more on you.

  2. @..1 COR:10,11″ Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

    11 Now all these things happened unto them for en samples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

    Beautiful revelations have been coming forth through each of the ‘VENOM REMOVAL SERIES’ since the time the series started in the peak hour of COVID 19,i.e on MARCH 25’2020.
    Since then whole world has been reeling under the heavy weight of the pandemic disease which is akin to the plague that killed the REDEEMED people of God.(NUMBERS 25:1-9.Ps 106:29).
    Daily new hot spots are getting identified. There has been no let up of this pandemic .

    Now let us deeply meditate on this EPISODE as it going to reveal so many contemporary truths that are happening .
    As the 6 &11 th verses quoted in the EPISODE repeatedly telling the world and particularly to all the CULTISH institutions like CPM/TPM,not a single Phinehas like personality has emerged among these CULTS so far in their decades old history sheet.Each CEO/ Chief of the institutions has been coming and going .They have been found wanting but alas they have been busy fulfilling in his own way or rather in his WILL than of God’s WILL.
    It is noteworthy to read Apostle Paul’s reminder in the 8 th verse..

    “8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.”

    This looks like stark reminder to the people of God at this very hour when COVID 19 has killed /has been killing so many precious souls of the humanity.If we want to count the number of lives they are running into millions.World economy day by day is really going to a negative spell.
    The greatest tragedy of the church is…. it is now filled with the people like ELINAs who do not wish to hear what their inner consciousness has been telling them.They knew very well that their path is wrong.But still,they want to give a deaf ear to it and only bent upon obeying to what their OUTER MAN tells them.

    Elina,please ring up to your INNER MAN and ask what it says to you.

    Its’ high time the people of God should realise what is happening around their churches

    Why are they not able to become like the BEREANS that the Scriptures told in ACTS 17?

    KUDOS to ADMN & his TEAM once again for producing this revealing EPISODE.

  3. Ceylon pentecostal mission bible study on divine healing is a false doctrine. Without medicine no cure from diabetes and other diseases. If a beliver suffering from normal fever just a paracetamol is enough Rs. 2 per tablet. Instead suffering from fever for four days and atlast die of the ailment. It is a to “SUCIDE”. For diabetes per month Rs. 5000/- medicines will reverse the sugar level in blood, then feel healthy. Instead die of high blood sugar levels. During the sick life loosing the legs, eye power is so notorious. Do the Ceylon Pentecostal Mission follow such a tough rules on a human. I really say it is a foolish organisation. Ceylon Pentecostal Mission is of no use to the humane. Waiting to see the shame on Ceylon Pentecostal Mission Pastors and Sisters. Ceylon Pentecostal Mission is a black mark on Christianity.

    • Good Evening Brother,

      It is upto their faith, why should you bother about them. You should bother about you and your family. They have an faith on divine healing (I pray the Lord grant me deliverance over every spirit of sickness. May He heal of every disease in my body and soul in Jesus’ name. May the Lord touch every of my organs, my system, my body fluids and grant me perfect healing), so they are following and make rule for them. If U like then only go church who force you. If i have any emergency myself will take tablet and i will check up my health also. It’s so easy to blame other people for our problems and personal grudge. This has been humanity’s scapegoat from the beginning.

        • @ MJ
          Have you heard of cult leader called Jim Jones ? He seduced people to commit mass suicide. 300 children and some thousand adult committed mass suicide under the influence of his teaching. So is tpm’s divine healing. It is not any personal belief of any one person in tpm. It is taught from generation to generation, and disciplnarily imposed on all members of tpm. By the way i am interested to know when will any news media cover that tpm members will not take vaccine of covid 19? Will it mean that authorities will not allow any dead in tpm to conduct funeral as they will have to seize bodies of tpm dead and burn them (if person is infected) ? Let a news channel cover it and I am sure tpm chief will issue order to take vaccine 😂

        • My king I lost my parents because of false preachings of Ceylon PENTECOSTAL mission. Pastors told diabetes will be cured because of prayer, but nothing happened. Instead they died. Who is responsible. Will you give me food.

  4. As an African TPM Believer, my eyes have been open by this website. Africa is really blind by this false doctrines. Here we are only concern about what the SOGs drop in to our brains and not to cross check like the bereans to prove if what is dropped in our brains is correct.
    I need a special prayer. It is not easy for me right now. I have openly made it known to my friends and a junior SOG that I don’t believe in tithing, secret rapture or pre-trib rapture and some other TPM doctrines. Now the pastor in charge is now aware of it. I am a Christian school teacher and a Sunday school teacher and am also part of the music ministry too I am under strict observation right now. Some friends think that my mind has been distorted because I love to do research and prove things out.
    I need your prayers. Thank you.

      I’m so happy to hear about your liberation from the bondage of TPM. Praise God! It is so encouraging to know how God is using a blog to help His sheep escape the clutches of these wolves. Please rest assured that you are safe in the arms of your Saviour and that you are not alone. In this place you can find similar folks like you and as we exchange our views and experiences, we realise that we are all not alone.

      I will never stop thanking God for fromtpm.com as it is not only a source of information but also a hangout for souls redeemed and liberated from the slavery of this satanic cult.

  5. Congratulations,Elina ,you ‘ve earned more thumbs ups and winning a precious soul in turn in the brother by name MJKing Add him in your latest list of friends.The only solace is he is not that much caustic in his remarks of half knowledge or rather nil in Scriptures even as it is most common feature with all the other hard core TPMites we have.Take it from me ,you would never come to the standard of BEREANS in your life time so long as you toe the line of this CULT.
    Its not surprising for us to know the list of 10 commandments from you because you and your CULT managers did set aside JESUS from your hearts long ago and claim yourselves that the MASTERS of SALVATION.You usurped Jesus who is our JOHN 14: 6 for the whole world.After setting the ALMIGHTY God aside what are claiming is: you are the WAY.,you are the TRUTH and you are the LIFE.You know fully well that it is a blasphemy,but still you follow it.

    Incidentally you are getting more thumbs ups for your 10 commandments than any one of the 1% contributing authors of this site in the recent past.Good keep it up.I am sure you would get more thumbs ups in the coming days.But whats the use?The most saddest part would be when we loose you in the running race of faith life that Apostle Paul speaks writes frequently.
    My humble appeal to you is that you don’t loose your RACE which is heading for a DEFEAT at the end.You can apply for a course correction and DEFECT to our lane of FAITH RUN of JESUS.This is the gospel news to you and to your friend MJ King for today.

  6. @Admin

    Excellent Article! May God bless you!
    I believe I should share “Light of the Word of God” with the rest of the readers of this site! Because sometimes when we read the Bible, we simply read it without understanding it, in the first place, until God sends his Light & then everything changes according to his plans.

    So, when we try to understand “Old Testament/Covenant” & “New Testament” we need to understand several things basically, which are as follows:
    >>Old Testament/Covenant was representing “Physical” aspects only, Bible elaborates as
    >1) Israelites had to be (‘Physically’) circumcised (Gen 17:10)
    >2) They had to (‘Physically’) keep the Sabbath day Holy (Exo 20:8, 31:16)
    >3) On each Sabbath day (‘Priest’) had to eat shewbread (Levi. 24:5-9)
    These three commandments must be “Physically” observed by People of God(Israelites); In return, God will perform Unparalleled “Physical” Miracles in the midst of Israel, which hasn’t been performed in every Nation (Exo 34:10)

    >>Now, when we read the “New Testament/Covenant”, it’s purely “Spiritual”

    >123< Now, before we understand the Last Portion of 'Shew Bread', we need to understand one Bible verse which is Ephesians 2:20 'built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone' just emphasizes on 'Foundation of Apostles & Prophets' which literally means 'Bible – (Prophets of OT & Apostles of NT)'. 'Shew Bread' is the Representation of 'The Centralized Character of the Bible- The Savior of Mankind- Lord Jesus'!!! We are the priest, we need to eat 'Jesus' (I'm not suggesting Cannibalism), which we do 'Spiritually' by 'Following the Lord's Table' as well as 'try to live our life Spiritually in Christ Jesus' .1 John 3:24.

    Now, we do all these i.e.
    1) Not going in Sin again after being Saved
    2) [as no one can ever say 'They've never sinned after their Salvation'] God has given Lord's table to purify us.
    3)Digesting 'The truth of Christlikeness'
    In return, God shall complete his Part of Covenant Isa 59:21 & Jeremiah 31:31-34.
    Those who follow these commandments: 1) Not Going in Sin again after Being Saved, 2) Following the Lord- by being obedient in the commandment of Lord's table, 3) Living in the Newness of Life
    for them "Psalms 50:5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice" this Bible verse will be fulfilled!!

    Here, I think I need to clarify 'covenant with me by sacrifice' refers to those 'who believe in Sacrifice of Jesus'; not 'so-called consecrated ministry'!

  7. I think a part of the last comment is missing

    For New testament
    >12< In OT. Sabbath was a sign between God & Israelites (Exo 20:8, 31:16-17); However, Sabbath was only for 'Physical Israelites' not for New Testament People (Colossians 2:16)
    As Mentioned in Exo 20:8 "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy."; Similarly, it's mentioned 1 Corin 11:25 "This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me."[Focus of both 'Remember & in Remembrance of Me']
    Now, another part of the Exo 20:8 is … 'By keeping it Holy' in 1 Corin 11:27,28 "So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. "

    Now, as mentioned in Exo 31:16-17 "The Israelites are to observe the Sabbath, celebrating it for the generations to come as a lasting covenant. It will be a sign between me and the Israelites forever…"
    [If someone has doubt that why not applying whole Exo 31:17;"… for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day; he rested and was refreshed."
    So which was that experience in which God rested?? Zephaniah 3:17 tells us " he will rest in his love;" which Love?? Isn't Bible tells us in Romans 5:8 "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." and because of the Sacrifice of Christ, we became God's Habitation- Ephesians 2:11-22]

    So, God totally replaced "Physical Obedience" with "Spiritual Obedience"!

  8. MJ King have absconded because he is unable to answer. This site is becoming a eye opener for so many good people. Every day a stone is kept removing from “Ceylon Pentecostal Mission’. Very soon this church will face serious fall and shame. Even after viewing all the Video evidence and proof. Still some unfaithfull monsters are defending “Ceylon Pentecosal Mission’. It is pathatic in their part. “Ceylon Pentecostal Mission’ pastors and sisters are responsible for so many innocent lives and their death. Very soon they will be put to shame and chased out of the Immoral hide out.

    What a refreshing and heart smoothing statement you made!

    We are all ONE in Christ brother,by the Saviour’s precious blood.
    ‘Am profoundly thankful to the Lord who redeemed you finally from the snare that I often remember my encounters too that I was snared by these fowlers.(Psalms 124:7)

    We are all so happy to see that you are truly liberated from these false doctrines as mentioned in your mail.

    Now consider these 425 EPISODES of this blessed site are at your command.Choose the relevant articles as tools that you wish to target the audience who are not aware of these God revealed truths.

    Go and spell the gospel to all our fellow brethren who are still being crushed under the wheels of these evil doctrines.Reach out to the F.Hs in Malaawi,Kenya and Tanzania and other places where ever those innocent souls are being spread with these evil doctrines.
    (you don’t have to literally visit those places–use the e-mail network and social media).

    Born in South India,I led a life of more than two decades old staunch union with this TPM CULT(it never struck me that it was a CULT),I was mesmerised to visit all its 4 INTERNATIONAL conventions held in Indian Subcontinent (In India-two places-Chennai/Kottarakara)-in Sri Lanka-Kokkawila),and in West(US-Ohio).In all those conventions I stood as a living witness to the Lord by giving my TESTIMONIES in each of these conventions.Though I do not regret for all my previous actions and encounters that I spent with this CULT,I immensely thank my Lord for having protected me through and through under His mighty care whenever I was air-born to attend these conventions (roughly 100 and odd times I was in the flights without having involved in any air accidents whatsoever (both in India & abroad) even as I had been maintaining my strong alignment with this CULT that I spent my God given energy and finances/savings.You can one way think I was under the evil spell of this CULT,but thanks to the merciful hand of the Lord that led me thus far safe and sound.
    In my mad rush and blind love with this CULT all through those years,I was about to visit Malaawi and Dubai local conventions too.
    Thank God for His everlasting mercies,He saved me from visiting those places.I do not wish to drag further as my comments become lengthy already.
    Do not forget to use this site as a strong input provider and reliable resource centre.Do share your encounters that you feel worthy to share.
    Wishing you all the best dear brother.
